Ownership Programs

Boats should be heavy on enjoyment, light on hassle – all at minimal cost.
In order to achieve that, a boat managed in a charter program or for multiple owners remains a great idea.

We’ve been managing boats for owners in charter with a comprehensive approach handling moorage, insurance, maintenance/monitoring, reservations and many other aspects of the experience since 1983. We’re rolling that out for boats that have multiple owners sharing their vessel (with or without charter) now.

We’ll run the business, be your nanny and your coach when it’s time to make any decision.

Charter Ownership

Worldwide, many yachts are offered for charter by their owners. People ask us for our standard program and while every owner gets the same offer, many owners have different objectives. We can have two identical boats with radically different results because one owner is all about the financial performance and the other is all about their holidays, with extra time sold off to offset costs. Yes, we have owners who make money with their boats, but they have a more comprehensive strategy we’ve developed It all starts with your objectives.

Business First Owner

When people start asking about Return on their investment and so forth, it’s a great signal for us that we are to dial up the revenue, carefully manage the investment and couple it with buying low and selling high where ever possible. We have some great examples of financial success in the boat business, but success depends on the right opportunities and being in tune with the market. Success may or may not be the exact boat you want.

Vacation First Owner

You’ve always wanted a boat. You buy exactly the boat you want and book all the time that you want. We see that too, but we explain that on the business side, if you owned a bakery and ate half the pastry, there is some effect to that. Even so, we do have some very happy ‘vacation first’ owners.

Somewhere in the middle

Of course, many owners fall on a ‘spectrum’ between full business and just for pleasure. Our recommendations will flow from your objectives and we’ve been doing this sort for many years. Let’s determine what success looks like for you and what you’ll enjoy spending on your boat is time.

Fractional Ownership

If you’re not keen on the business approach, how about a setup where each user of a boat has an equal investment? People don’t find a bunch of friends and buy a building together, they buy a condo or timeshare. One physically splits the asset, and the other shares time. No magic here, you are on title for your share of the boat and we’re appointed to manage it for you.
